    I need help due to the Cydia servers being so busy I am unable to download a theme from Cydia I have restarted time and time again, could some one perhaps give me a walkthrough for a mac user to put a theme on my iPhone via Mac. Any help would be most helpful.

    Do you have WinterBoard installed? I use iFunbox to drag and drop my images on both Mac & PC.

    Soory dude been flat out!! :-o

    Ok well I use iFunbox and I havent had any issues with it running on my Mac or PC. But anyway I will try my best.

    Have you managed to download the theme somehow?

    basically if you have a complete theme on your desktop or in a file it should be packaged as a theme once extracted it a zip file.

    So it will just be a folder named as per the theme e.g Ayecon.theme

    That folder contains all the directory structures for it to work on your device. Its basically a double up of how the iOS uses it's files and folders.

    So if you have WinterBoard installed, all you should have to do is Navigate to /var/stash/Themes.XXXXXX (unique to your iDevice) and drop it in there.

    Now if you go to your WinterBoard tweak and open it up and hit "select themes" you should see your theme in the list menu. e.g Ayecon, drag it to the top of the menu list as its a hierachy type system and select it that will show a tick and then click on the "WinterBoard" back button on the top and select "respring" and your theme should now be showing up on your phone.

    If images dont theme then its not iOS 6 compatible and is going to need a rejig, dont stress its not a major just the filenames need to be named correctly.

    See how you go

    I am on iPhone 5 iOS 6.1. After reading your post it just dawned on me that winterboard is not installed by default although it always restarts spring board. So I went to download it and after installing and pressing "reboot device" my phone is not stuck at the Apple logo.

    It's stuck at the apple logo u mean? Hard reset by holding down the home and lock/power button until the screen goes black and the apple logo appears.

    I have actually found my device will reboot fine plugged into the computer which makes me think the JB is almost slightly Semi - tethered to help it get thru the boot process...

    ^ That fixed it! It scared me because I just came off of an android phone so having a boot loop can mean a lot of scary stuff. I tried it twice and it booted fine.
